ST. PAUL, Minn. – Local communities and regional agencies are invited to take advantage of a new $13 million competitive grant program intended to fund projects for pedestrian and bicycle facilities, historic preservation, Safe Routes to School and more, the Minnesota Department of Transportation said today.

The new Transportation Alternatives Program provides funding for a variety of projects, including many that were previously financed under separate programs, such as Transportation Enhancements, Scenic Byways and Safe Routes to School.

The grant solicitation process currently is open only to Greater Minnesota applicants. The TAP solicitation for the seven-county Twin Cities metropolitan area will open in late 2013.

Greater Minnesota applicants must submit a letter of intent describing the key components of their project by November 15, 2013. A regional representative will contact applicants to help review the project proposal and the steps necessary for delivering a federally funded project before local communities and regional agencies submit their full grant application.

Deadlines for the Greater Minnesota applicants are:

• November 15, 2013 - Letter of intent deadline

• February 1, 2014 - Full grant application deadline

• April 15, 2014 - Grant recipients announced
